SUPACAT PURRS WITH TROJAN’S TREK

Supacat is a successful UK based company which now operates in the defence industry field in Australia. Supacat is committed to partnering with Australian industry and is delivering development, production and support programs with Australian partners under the Supacat Team Australia banner. Therefore it was not a huge step for the Australian Managing Director to seek ways in which the company could become involved with innovative Australian initiatives related to the military.

Hence the potential for a relationship with the Trojan’s Trek Foundation was formed. To cement the relationship the Chairman, Moose Dunlop OAM travelled to Sydney to address the company annual dinner on 24 October. As a consequence, Supacat has offered to assist the foundation in their continuing role of rebuilding the psychological health of our damaged veterans.

EX-TIGER KICKS THE CAN

It is not the first time that Brian Budden, ex-5 RAR first tour 1966/67 has shown his altruistic side to the benefit of the Trojan’s Trek Foundation. But this time the donation was awarded on a day to signify a memory he wishes to commemorate.  The donation marks the day John Sweetnam 8 Pl C Coy was KIA on operations in SVN.  The envelope handed to the Foundation Chair Moose Dunlop OAM on 23 Jun carries the message.  Present on the occasion was the then Section Commander Dogs Kearney OAM, now resident in Adelaide.  Moose reported that the reminiscences between the two were entertaining and thought provoking.

 

The sincere thanks from the foundation were extended to Brian for his most generous gift devoted to the welfare of our successors.

RSL CARE SA CONTRIBUTES

The excellent relationship between the Foundation and RSL care was further enhanced recently with a very generous donation to the cause.  This is not the first time RSL Care SA has assisted Trojan’s Trek and confirms the intent of the RSL Care Board to embrace their philosophy which is to provide “care and support for the benefit of the ex-service and wider community”. The funds will be used on the upcoming SA treks for men and women.

A large group of about 55 listened to the Probus member Tom Pearce thanks Moose for his address presentation and to James personal experience with stress illness and his recovery.

The number of insightful and astute questions which followed indicated a high level of interest in the approach taken by the foundation.
